The Filipino Community of Oregon and Southwest Washington invites all to its “Simbang Gabi” novena of Masses before Christmas. The Rosary will be prayed a half hour before each Mass. Please note that in most cases, the Mass on Saturday will be the same as each parish’s vigil Mass. Refreshments will be available after each Mass on Dec. 23.
